Yes, the Internet mob wants to agree on what is just and attack those who are against that. Sony is bad, they do tons of crappy things, but what is happening to Sony Pictures right now is worse. We'll bash Sony another day when they aren't be eviscerated by a group threatening to kill people and still put peace in their name.

Was the iPod Accessory Port Inspired By a 40-Year-Old Camera? 263

An anonymous reader writes "While Samsung has been accused of repeatedly borrowing everything from Apple's hardware, to packaging and accessories, it appears that all current iDevices share a port which is very similar to one found on a forty-year-old Polaroid camera. It gets more interesting when you realize that camera was the 'supreme achievement' of a man Steve Jobs idolized. Edwin Land was the creator of the Polaroid camera and, if Steve Jobs obsessed over Land's devices the way many do with iPhones, etc. today, there's a chance this similarity is not a coincidence."
